Nicole Scherzinger adds a sexy touch to Nintendo video game “GoldenEye 007,” rerecording the theme song originally sung by Tina Turner. The classic tune, featured in the game’s opening credits sequence, pairs the Pussycat Doll with a brassy backing section, giving the track a more contemporary feel.
“I absolutely love all the Bond music. I think it creates this whole other world,” stated Nicole. “James Bond and the Bond girls are just the epitome of cool.”
The “Poison” singer explained that recording the theme song was an unexpected honor. “When the opportunity was presented to me that we were going to be remaking the ‘GoldenEye’ song, I actually flipped. Not only am I a huge James Bond fan, but I’m a huge fan of Tina Turner and the song itself,” she shared. “For me, it’s not so much showing off vocally. It’s more about staying true to the heart of the song.”
Though she feels responsibility to live up to the song’s legacy, she’s taking a few liberties, too. “I definitely feel like they handed off the ‘GoldenEye’ torch to me, so hopefully, I’ll do my own thing on it. Have some fun with it,” she continued. “I think that music creates a whole other world, a world of escape. I think that players will really feel the essence of Bond through this song.”
